New Moon in Taurus May 2023

New Moon in Taurus May 2023

This month the New Moon  is in grounding Taurus  on May 19  at 11:53 am EDT find your time here).

This New Moon is helping us see where our foundation isn't as secure as we thought it was.

A New Moon in Taurus deals with themes of security and our foundation. Where we are growing from and what is helping support us. Taurus is a fixed sign and does not like to change, however, the day before this New Moon, the Moon meets up with Uranus, and gets us curious about what change might actually look like for us.

We’re being presented with information regarding an aspect of how we live our lives. So many of us go through our day rushing about and trying to fit as much in it as possible. We don’t take the time to slow down and enjoy the beauty around us. We often ignore the beauty around us! This New Moon makes it clear that this way of living, this foundation, is crumbling under our feet. This New Moon may be uncomfortable, and we could feel like a bull in a china shop, stumbling about and trying to find our footing.

The Moon is widely conjunct Uranus at the time of the New Moon, giving us an opportunity to make a change. Mercury sextile Saturn the same day as the New Moon helps us get clear about something we've been ruminating on for awhile now.

Some questions to ask yourself on this New Moon:

  • Where in my life do I need to slow down?

  • What can help me ground and center right now?

  • Where can I add more beauty or luxury to my life?

  • What can nature teach me right now?
